GUTTED to hear about Rick. He was an absolutely awesome designer. I spent every waking hour I could on my Spectrum as a kid.

Ouch. Yes, I grew up with her in the role, and it’s her face I see when I think of Lois Lane.

69. She’s younger than my Dad. Not meaning to be morbid but it makes one think.

The same thought occurred to me (about my dad, not yours!)

If I'm being honest I've always thought Kidder's Lois was a pretty dreadful creature, but she was also a wonderful, memorable screen creation, who I can instantly bring to life in my mind's eye all these years later.  As iconic as Reeve's definitive Superman, and now as much missed.  Sad to read of Margot's long struggle.  RIP.
